Cosmopolitan Magazine's famous editor Helen Gurley Brown has died, reports the Baltimore Sun:
The iconic editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, with its bosomy Cosmo girls on the cover dripping with pearls and promising pleasure, died Monday at the age of 90 after a brief illness. She had reported to her pretty, pink corner office in the Hearst Building in Manhattan almost daily until her death.
"It would be hard to overstate the importance ... of her success... with Cosmopolitan," said a statement from Hearst Corporation, the magazine's publisher. "Helen was one of the world's most recognized magazine editors and book authors, and a true pioneer for women in journalism — and beyond."
